Yeppers, that’s right my sweet sugar dumplings it’s a NEW YEAR and boy is Miss Hammie glad that 2018 is D.O.N.E. done!!! Sure I gained another birthday straight out of the gate, January 3rd in case you were curious. I’m working on goals and plans to make 2019 my best year so far in all areas of my life.
However I’m here to share my craftiness and I have to admit my last card of 2018 is, IMHO, so beautiful I’m going to not only share my first card of 2019, but my last card of 2018 as well. I’m also not sharing information on the 2018 card other than the stamp set which I believe is still available, but don’t quote me on that. I will say this if you’re new to my blog or new to Stampin’ Up products or both even new to crafting that I would love to be the demonstrator that helps guide you.
I found myself in need of some thank you cards in December and they had, not I wanted, they had to be special. Here is that card. I made this card using the Painted Harvest stamp set. It’s an extremely versatile stamp set. In my eyes I achieved beautiful, what do you think?
( for some reason WP is behaving a tad oddly so I will be adding another post with my other card).
Hello my darling honey dumplings. Here’s the 411 on the Online Extravaganza. Today and tomorrow and then as quickly as it came it will be GONE. Today and tomorrow ( I’m trying to drive home that you only have about 5 1/2 hours left today and tomorrow to get these products from the Annual catalog. The items that are available are Tools and Ink. This would have been perfect for me before OnStage Live ( I’ll be sharing pictures of the swaps that I collected during OnStage after the Extravaganza). I needed Night of Navy ink for 42 cards and saving 10% on an ink pad and reinker would have been sweet.
Think of the cards you’ll be making for the holidays a couple or three extra ink pads would probably come in handy. There is also a select group of tools that’s also available at a 10% savings. Now I don’t know if you’ve been lackadaisical about this or not, but come Thursday Miss Hammie doesn’t want to hear any “Oh woe is me, I missed the Online Extravaganza Miss Hammie , think we could maybe cut a deal?” My answer Ahhhh, no. While I might run a few specials in 2019, I practically shouted this from the rooftops. However there’s still time to get tools and ink. Now you know the deal with the link below, so use it and save 10%.

Happy Monday my sweet dumplings super pumped to be here with you. Sound the saluting trumpets and drums. Why? Simple, the Online Extravaganza continues today.
I know, I know, you want Miss Hammie to tell you what’s included in the list of goodies today. Well, today you still get a 10% savings on selected stamps and kits from the Stampin’ Up Annual catalog. Need a bigger reminder?
Is that big enough? As in previous days I’m adding a direct path to what’s available via my online store.

Hello my sweet dumplings as I explained in my hastily added post yesterday Stampin’ Up is having a (insert trumpet salute here) Three Day Online Extravaganza. Selected items in three groups, Paper & Embellishments; Stamps & Kits; and Tools and Ink will be available at 10% off. It’s like getting free shipping, cost wise. Over the three days nearly every item in the Annual catalog will be on sale for 10% off its regular price. Sweetnesses remember that Miss Hammie said nearly, so there will be some exclusions. I told you it was an extravaganza and to me 10% off nearly all the items is an extravaganza. I’m listing a direct link to the items being sold today via my online store. This the day to pick up that paper or those embellishments you wanted for those cards or the pages of those memory books you making as gifts. My suggestions for simple traditional holiday cards would be Whisper White, Garden Green and Real Red or Cherry Cobbler cardstock. When ordering paper the question is always “How much should I order?”. Remember you can make two standard size (51/2 in. X 41/4in.) from one piece of cardstock. Don’t forget a roll of coordinating ribbon or some other embellishment. It never hurts to add a little sparkle.

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Here Comes the Sun.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by the joy of the summer sun. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Hello my sweet dumplings let’s get to it. The theme of our blog hop this month is “Here Comes the Sun”. I’ve been wanting to use the new Enjoy Life stamp set from Stampin’ Up’s new Annual catalog. This stamp set has a few sentiments and images that remind me of my niece and what says fun to her, running. What better time to run than when there’s sunshine, not hot, sunny since running in the rain really isn’t fun. As per usual I digress, sorry about that. I used two new colors, Balmy Blue ( at least I hope that’s Balmy Blue) and Call Me Clover as well as Whisper White and Daffodil Delight. My card base is Balmy Blue cardstock onto which I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock. I stamped my images on a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the runner and Call Me Clover ink to stamp the grass. On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink I stamped the sentiment which I cut out using one of the smaller dies from the Layering Ovals Framelits dies and my Big Shot. Using my two inch circle punch I punched out a circle of Daffodil Delight cardstock. I attached that to the Balmy Blue layer using Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid Blue which I also used to attach the sentiment. Lastly using Stampin’ Dimensionals I attached that layer to the Whisper White layer. Hopefully you understood that my sweet ones, if not here’s the photo. I was surprised by how much I like it as my creative side seems to have been on an extended vacation of late. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the bloghop,
There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Happy Marvelous Monday my sweet dumplings and if you knew how much I once dreaded Mondays, well that’s a story for another time. I have ginormously big news to share with you so that makes it marvelous. I’ve been bending your ears about one of my favorite Stampin’ Up products, it’s the monthly subscription crafting box Paper Pumpkin, for quite some time. Then I show you projects that I’ve made using products from one of our catalogs. Well my sweet ones Stampin’ Up has come up with the perfect solution. They’re coordinating the June Paper Pumpkin to the Broadway Bound product suite in the new Annual catalog.
Are you thinking “This looks interesting what do I need to do to get in on this?”. It’s as simple as 1,2,3, just subscribe to Paper Pumpkin by June 10th to get the June kit. Since I know you want the full experience you also need to get items from the Broadway Bound suite. There’s some really fun designer series paper and coordinating cardstock, 1/2 inch satin ribbon, metallic pearls and cute candle embellishments.
There’s a bundle that consists of the Broadway Birthday stamp set and the Broadway Lights Framelits dies. Now if you’re a newbie to paper crafting and just want to give this a try I would probably give the bundle a pass even though if you have a bit of experience the bundle does save you 10% over buying these items separately. However if this is a test drive for you I suggest the designer series paper and coordinating cardstock pack and the metallic pearls. The catalog is good until this time next year so if you enjoy it you can pick up the other items later. Now remember you MUST SUBSCRIBE BY JUNE 10 to get the June kit. Here’s an additional incentive if you subscribe using the link below as a thank you from me I’ll send you one of the new Annual catalogs. In the event you can’t wait for your hard copy you can access the online version via my online store. There’s a link below for that too. As you peruse the catalog and like all us crafters start thinking “ Well I need this too and ooh that’s so pretty I want that too”. Once you start totally those up you’ll see why I say the best choice is to sign up. Once you become a demonstrator like moi, that’s right my sweet dumplings Miss Hammie is trilingual, lol not really. I actually know a little French, more than a little Spanish and I’m a native English speaker, but as often happens I digress. Demonstrators get a 20% discount and you’re under no obligation to sell to anyone. Avid crafters who love the products enjoy the savings that being a demonstrator gets them. When you sign up you pay $99.00 and get to select $125.00 worth of products that ships to you free of charge. If you decide nope this was a bad idea after a week or two you can simply shoot them an email and say that you no longer want to be a demonstrator and that’s that. There’s no fee to quit, you don’t have to return anything. One of the many things that I can say about Stampin’ Up without hesitation is that they just want their demonstrators and customers to be happy. You can be part of this by joining my team. There’s a link below for that too.
Well my dumplings that’s it for me for today so TTFN

Hi again dumplings, In case you didn’t hear this information already the new Stampin’ Up Annual catalog is live and you can order now. Well not right now because I would like for you to check out these cards. Now the dsp and stamp set have retired, but the ink that I used for both and the punch are available in the new catalog. Besides you never know, things sometimes turn up on the Clearance Rack which you can access thru my Online Store. Anywho here are the cards. I really loved this stamp set, no that’s not true, I loved the entire suite. It was (and for me is) absolutely perfect for the men in my life. They don’t hunt, they don’t fish and while one has owned a truck, he doesn’t own one now. Moving on here are the cards.
The card base is Crumb Cake onto which I adhered a layer of Tranquil Tide. The last layer is dsp from the True Gentleman dsp pack. I added two slim strips of Tranquil Tide and Dad also in Tranquil Tide. I used the Stampin’ Up Adhesive Strips to attach Dad to the dsp and Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid glue to attach the strips. I used the Large Letter Framelit dies and the Big Shot to cut out the letters. I think any Dad would be happy to open an envelope and find this inside (probably along with the keys to a new vehicle).
Next we have what’s called an Impossible Card. I saw it on Splitcoast Stampers and had to give it a try. The card base is Night of Navy, still available. The dsp is also from the True Gentleman dsp pack ( you’re really angry with yourself now aren’t you ). Both sentiments are from the Truly Tailored stamp set and I used the Tailored Tag punch to cut out the “To a classy kind of guy”.
I’m sorry you missed out on this, if you did. I’m positive some of my sweet dumplings followed my advice and checked out the Occasions catalog and already have their Father’s Day cards ready to go. However as I promised I’ll find some appropriate dsp and a stamp set and do these same cards with products you can get now. Be good because I’ve got some big, no huge news for you on Monday. Or you could come hang out with me on my FB page, Robbye Stamps tomorrow for a stroll thru the new catalog. If you can’t make it I’ll see you on Marvelous Monday, TTFN
